HUES OF BLUE

Hues of Blue

My absolute go-to color when decorating and designing is blue.  Blue seems to be one of the only colors that maintains its own character in all its tones; it always manages to stay true to itself.  Blue gives such a striking effect to walls, floors and fixtures providing a color accent that pops.  It also allows you to dress various rooms in different shades that all compliment one another and create uniqueness in each space.  Don’t limit yourself to one shade of blue when you can unleash your creativity and enjoy many shades at once!

Here’s a small selection of super cool blue rooms to find color inspiration for your home.

Be Bold & Beautiful with Bedding

Be Bold & Beautiful with Bedding

As much as I like to stretch my decorating dollars, textiles are one area I feel should get a bit more budget and attention.  I always pay that little bit extra for bedding as it can bring elegance, design & style, and luxurious opulence to a bedrooms decor.  Be unique, fun, and beautiful with your  bedding and completely change the look of a space.  This small change can make you feel new and excited and give you the added boost to climb into bed and drift off to dreamland. It’s a new season and a new reason to redo your bedroom so here are some images to inspire:

Frame Space With Balustrades

Frame Space With Balustrades

When you design and build a masterpiece staircase think about the balustrades.   Whether you are using iron, glass, steel, or wood you can  make it a fascinating creation. A balustrade is a row of repeating balusters – small posts that support the upper rail of a railing. Staircases and porches often have balustrades.

A new trend is frameless glass balustrades that maximize the perception of space through a modern minimalist appearance, retaining views while providing security and safety for staircases, balconies and decks. Glass provides an architectural feature that will enhance and add value to your home.

Stylish Stair Runners

Stylish stair runners

Stylish stair runners can be an added element of design detail for any space and are a fun way to add decor to the hall, stairs or landing area where most visitors will see.  This is a great place to make a statement and set the scene for the rest of your home.  Stair runners provide the perfect opportunity to express your taste or to emphasize the age and style of the property.

While non-dressed stairs can be a default and something we don’t even notice day to day, there are so many stylish stair runners that can be made from any carpet type or style you desire to work with your overall decorating theme.  If it is a contemporary look you are going for then look no further than stripes or geometric patterns.  Stripes seem to be the single best selling style for modern staircases and done correctly do look stunning.  Add some chrome stair rods and you have completed the look.  In a property with history, look to use more of a velvet pile pattern or an oriental design fitted with bronze or brass stair rods to add that essential class.
